Need an ultimate Queen playlist

Hello all. I don't own any albums by Queen (I know, I know) but would like to get a good sampling of the band's music without dropping a ton of cash on EVERYTHING they've ever done. I also don't want to buy a "Greatest Hits" album, because as we all know, greatest hits doesn't always equal greatest songs.

So, I want a list of 10-15 of Queen's must haves. They don't have to be the popular ones: We Will Rock You and We are the Champions can be excluded from the count, but will likely make the list as bonuses. I'm looking for the absolute best songs.

Here's what I got so far as the popular ones that I like:
Killer Queen
Fat Bottom Girls
Bohemian Rhapsody

Point me to the others that I might not have heard on the radio.


And Shepherds we shall be
For thee, my Lord, for thee.
Power hath descended forth from Thy hand
Our feet may swiftly carry out Thy commands.
So we shall flow a river forth to Thee
And teeming with souls shall it ever be.
In Nomeni Patri Et Fili Spiritus Sancti.

OMG Jedi Knight 4!!!

I second Under Pressure. It's one of my favorite all-time songs.

I recommend: Who wants to live forever, A kind of magic and Don't lose your head (Highlander music = awsome!)

First off I’m a little bias when it comes to the Album The Game as I was a freshman in high school when it came out.

The only thing the order has to do with is it is the order of my play list.

1. One Vision from the Album A Kind of Magic

2. Save Me from The Game – One of my favorite Queen songs.

3. Play The Game from The Game

4. Crazy Little Thing Called Love from The Game.

5. You’re My Best Friend from A Night at the Opera

6. Somebody to Love from A Day at the Races

7. Killer Queen from Sheer Heart Attack

8. Another One Bites the Dust from The Game

9. We Are The Champions from News of the World

10. We Will Rock You from News of the World

11. Coming Soon from The Game

12. Sail Away Sweet Sister from The Game

13. Rock It from The Game

14. Need Your Loving Tonight from The Game

15. Dragon Attack from The Game

16. Who Wants to Live Forever from A Kind of Magic (one of the most beautiful songs ever written).

17. Headlong from Innuendo

18. These Are the Days of Our Lives from Innuendo

19. The Miracle from The Miracle

20. I Want It All from The Miracle Besides Killer Queen, Who Wants to Live Forever and Under Pressure, I Want It All is my most listen to song according to iTunes.

21. Radio Ga Ga from The Works

22. One Year of Love from A Kind of Magic. Don’t know about ultimate, but it is another song from the film Higlander, which is the reason it is on my ultimate Queen.

23. Under Pressure from Hot Space

24. Bohemian Rhapsody from A Night at the Opera

25. A Kind of Magic from A Kind of Magic

26. The Show Must Go On from Innuendo. Beautiful song made even more so knowing how close Freedie was to death.

^All total epicness! I have that 3-cd box ultimate collection from Queen. It's a must-have in every household I think.

In any case, the song 'Innuendo' from the album of the same name? I always liked the way the song progressed. Rock, Flamengo, some metal...awesome.

Get all their music. I've found that songs that I didn't care for at first end up being some of my favorites after listening to them a few times.


From MST3K's spoof of "Hercules Unchained"--heard as Roman medic soldiers carry off an unconscious Greek Hercules on a 1950's Army green canvas stretcher: "Hi, we're IX-I-I. Did somebody dial IX-I-I?"

Read The Adventures of Jolee Bindo and see the amazing Peep Surgery

Since about 1990 I can no longer listen to "Under Pressure" without imagining the wretched "Ice, ice baby!" in the background.


"They should rename the team to the Washington Government Sucks. Put Obama on the helmet. Line the entire walls of the stadium with the actual text of the ACA.
Fix their home team score on the board to the debt clock, they can win every game 17,000,000,000,000 to 24. Losing team gets taxed by the IRS 100%, then droned."

You must get '39. It's my favorite song by them. What could be better than a song by Queen about the theory of special relativity? WHAT?
